At the 2019-2020 Annual General Meeting, Helen Morrow was awarded Honorary Life Membership of the Cranbourne Friends, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.
Helen Morrow joined the Committee in 2002 and when a Membership Officer was needed, she volunteered to take on that role, filling it for 16 years. During those years she was also Vice President, performed the duties of Acting Treasurer when required and was the friendly face manning the Welcome Desk at many different Friends’ functions.
She finally volunteered to act as host at the Elliot Centre’s regular monthly Open Days, welcoming everyone, looking after guest speakers and providing afternoon teas. It has been sterling, and varied, service over many years. She is, not surprisingly, widely known and held in affection by many Friends, who will be delighted that she is to be given this award.
The HLM certificate, as shown in Tim Morrow’s photo above, features a John Armstrong illustration of Nuytsia florabunda.
Thank you for everything and well done Helen!
